Before you shop for a new home, get pre-qualified.

August 29, 2012

If you’ve ever gone shopping and been hit with sticker shock, you know what it feels like to desire something out of your financial reach. Don’t let that happen to you when looking for your dream home. Mortgage pre-qualification will help you avoid disappointment and save time by focusing on a new home that meets both your needs and your budget.

Pre-qualification is a quick, easy process that will determine how much of a mortgage you are approved to receive. You can use one of a variety of online loan calculators but these tools really only provide a rough estimate and don’t always take many factors into consideration. And remember that a calculator is no guarantee that a lender will approve the amount. Your actual pre-qualified amount could be higher or lower. Underwriting varies from lender to lender, so talk to a few mortgage lenders to find out what they can offer you. Choosing the lender before you start shopping can expedite the process once you find a home. And pre-qualification makes you a more appealing buyer because the seller knows you can actually get a mortgage—eliminating the “wait and worry” phase on both sides.

Stylecraft Builders works with Wallick and Volk Mortgage Lending and they’ll be happy to get you started. Click here to get a Pre-Qualify Form. And let us know if you have any questions about the home buying process. We’re here to make it an enjoyable experience to find your dream home!

Which is the Smarter Investment? New Home or Resale???

August 15, 2012

The truth is, the sale price of a resale is often only the beginning. You’ll likely have to invest in repairs—cosmetic or structural. Depending on the age of the house, you might be looking at replacing the roof, flooring, major appliances, furnace, water heater, or other items that last only a finite number of years. What kind of structural repairs are you facing? Do you know the condition of the underlying support system (foundation, beams, etc.)? And how responsible was the previous owner? Did he ignore basic maintenance or perhaps cut corners on repairs?

Once you add up the extra costs associated with bringing a resale up to your standards, you might find yourself regretting that you didn’t opt for a brand new home. Consider these advantages of purchasing a new home:

  1. Picture perfect. You’re not at the mercy of the previous owner’s choices. You can choose everything in advance: location, floor plan, windows, trims, flooring, appliances, light fixtures, window treatments, colors, and even the landscaping.
  2. Move-in condition. You won’t need to spend time or money on changes and repairs after the sale.
  3. Warranties. With a new home, you gain the peace of mind that comes with having everything under warranty: the house itself, as well as the appliances, flooring, and heating and air conditioning systems.
  4. Energy efficiency. Starting from the ground up allows you to incorporate energy efficient systems into your home—rather than attempt a retrofit—so you enjoy continued comfort and savings.
  5. Low maintenance. New homes are built with the latest in technology and materials, designed for greater durability and low maintenance.

Forget the myths you’ve heard about purchasing a new home. We’re in a new decade, with new advances, pricing, and more. There has never been a better time to reap the rewards of a new home!
